It was great!! The tour contained SF history, architecture, and food knowledge. Very thorough and extensive!
Lots of good info about the food and the area in general.
Informative. Entertaining. Thorough. Eye opening. Organized.
I am not familiar with the Mission district and found this tour to be a great introduction to this area--the history, the architecture, some of the murals, as well as shops. Chef Joseph knows what he's talking about. There's a lot of walking but it's an easy walk (no hills!). Plus we were never rushed. Chef Joseph provided a list of all the places (restaurants, shops) covered in the tour--very handy should I want to go back to any of them on my own (which I plan to do!). A well-thought-out tour that's worth taking.
This was a really great experience with tons of info about the mission and its eateries.
